VMware / LLDP / Gen8 not working for customer. Suggestions?

Stefan was working on a customer issue:

 

*************

 

Have a customer with both vSphere 5.1 and 5.5 environments (Using vDS)

c7000, Gen8 blades (530FLB) and Virtual Connect. Everything updates to latest SPP + latest HP Custom VMware Images.

 

They are seeing that on their G7 servers, LLDP works just fine, however no info shows up on Gen8 servers.

Any points/ideas?

First, ask them to change LLDP to “Listen” mode.

 

“Advertise” and “Both” can create performance problems

Second, you need to enable LLDP on 530FLB cards. It is not enabled by default:
